Christmas Light Displays

In the spirit of Christmas, let's talk about Christmas lights.  Along with everything else about this time of year, I love Christmas lights.  They are so colorful, pretty, and twinkly... what's not to like?  My love for Christmas lights started when I was a kid because every Thanksgiving Day my dad would put the Christmas lights up on the house and my sister and I would get to help.  Jeremy and I sadly do not have any lights up on our house, but we will next year since we'll have our very own house to decorate.  Since we don't have any lights up, I'm going to live vicariously through the two video clips below.  But before we get to that, let's view the best "Christmas light moment" from one of the best Christmas movies ever, "National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation!"

Alright, now onto these two Christmas light displays.  Aren't they cool?  I could watch them over and over again.  Plus, I have so many questions for these people!  How long does it take you to set up?  Isn't it expensive?  What is your electric bill like?!  Do you feel like you live in a disco club?  Do your neighbors hate you?  Anyway, check out these two clips to increase your Christmas spirit and get inspired for next year.  Enjoy!

Those are some intense lights! My husband works with a guy who took 2 weeks off from work to set up his Christmas lights - no joke. I wonder if his look like these?

I love Christmas lights! These are amazing! I love that Trans Siberian Orchestra song. The Amazing Grace video was better I thought... had a "disco" vibe. I love them!

Christmas lights are my favorite too. I can't wait to have my own house to decorate one day for the season.
